Synopsis: No single act in sports has had as great an impact on our culture, our language, and our imagination as the home run. So how come weve had to wait so long for the definitive biography! Dingers! tells the history of the round-tripper, from Babe Ruth to the chasing and breaking of the Babe's records to today's pumped-up tater totals. Its narrative will trace the relationship among home runs, players, and fans, showing how "going yard" has grown in importance to the point where jacking the ball over the wall often overshadows the actual results of games. Easy to read forhistory, browse for nuggets, or use for reference, Dingers! appeals to casual fans and seamheads alike. Think of it as your one-stop guide to going downtown.

About the Author:
With Dingers!, ESPN the Magazine senior writer Peter Keatingapplies his investigative skills and his sense
of humor to baseball's signature act: the home run. For the last five years, Keating has authored "The Biz," a column that tackles financial issues from the fan's perspective. His profile of super-agent Leigh Steinberg was named a notable story of 2002 in Best American Sports Writing. Before coming to ESPN, Keating was a senior writer at George, where he covered national politics, and at Money, where he wrote "The Advocate" columnand won the IRE Award for best magazine article of 1997 for his investigation into drug-switching in the pharmaceutical industry. His work has appeared in publications ranging from Mother Jones to New York to Fortune. He lives in Montclair, N.J. with his wife, Karen, and daughter, Eleanor.
